credit where it's due

The concom of Readercon has issued a public apology for the Rene Walling harassment debacle, as well as a statement of actions going forward. While the whole thing is obviously still very much a work in progress, these are very encouraging signs.

I'm cautiously optimistic that the forces that wish to make Readercon a safe and welcoming space are prevailing. The only remaining question is whether or not I want to volunteer for the safety committee. I have the physical energy these days, but given the uphill battle that I'm perceiving this entire clusterfuck to have been, do I have the emotional energy?
